Ashes History: 1882-2017

History of the Ashes cricket series

Cricket’s greatest rivalry. Australia, England, battling it out for that little urn. The Ashes is the cricket series to end all series, pitting the traditional rivals against each other in a test of will and skill.

First played in 1882, the term The Ashes, is derived from the famous obituary, published in British newspaper The Sporting Times, in 1882, which stated English cricket had died and “the body will be cremated and the ashes taken to Australia”. It was the first time Australia had beaten the Poms on their home soil and sent the nation into mourning.

It finally showed that Australia was a viable opponent and led to the rivalry as we know it today.

The Ashes urn, which remains at the MCC Museum, at the storied Lords in England, is believed to contain the ashes of a cricket bail, although historians are only 95 per cent sure that is fact.

The rich history of the Ashes has produced some of the greatest series and single test matches you will ever see.

Played over five Tests since 1998, Australia dominated for many years, winning eight in a row between 1989 and 2003 before England claimed a 2-1 victory, that was followed by a 5-0 whitewash by the Aussies in 2007 – the first time that had occurred.

Since then, the Poms have won three straight, with Australia briefly grabbing them back in 2014, before surrendering them the next year.

England are the current holders of the Ashes.

Past Ashes results

Australia and England have both won the Ashes 32 times, but in recent times, it has been England with the wood over their old enemy. Out of the last five series England has recorded four victories, although this is somewhat tarnished by Australian winning the 2014-15 series 5-0. View all results.
